Question abs traction control, speedometer not working

I have a 99 528i and the speedometer works part of the time. At first it may work for about 4 miles and then quit and the abs and trac light was on all the time. I took advice from the forum and replaced the lr speed sensor, the spedometer worked for about 75 miles with the lights on, and then quit again. I let it set overnight, and the lights were off and the speedo worked again, drove about 6 miles and parked it for a couple of hours, got back in and the lights sayed on, but the speedo is working.

help please! it's my first BMW
